Review: Looper

Beyond being a compelling sci-fi action flick (and an original one, too, which is frustratingly rare), Looper uses the genre to examine real anxieties. And not in the “let’s raise this issue so people think we’re deep, then drop it” way that the new Total Recall did, but with the same understanding of technology as an extension of humanity that writers like Philip K. Dick used to elevate the genre in the first place.
